A. M., D. Pd. 

An idealist who keeps his feet on the ground; 

a leader who inspires us to reach for 

the best in life while teaching us 

how to work for it. 

Welcome, Dr. Scott. 


To the Members of the Class of 1934 

It has been a great pleasure to me to become acquainted 
with the individual members of your class during your last 
year in college. Your teachers have watched your growth 
with a better understanding than I because they have taught 
you, and worthily. However, I have been sincerely interested 
in your general and professional welfare. At the end of this 
my first year as president of the college, I am devoted to the 
high cause of the professional education of teachers as exem- 
plified in the work of the college. 

In accepting this important professional position I ex- 
perienced a real sense of the responsibility, and a keen under- 
standing of the opportunity offered for educational service. 
For several years I had known of the Bridgewater traditions 
and accomplishments. Now that I have worked a year in 
close touch with the life of the student body and the faculty 
I begin to feel myself a part of the institution. You are now 
graduates of a college. You are now dedicating yourselves 
to the teaching profession. In giving this short message to 
the members of your class it is appropriate for me to join with 
you in dedicating my best efforts and my honest zeal to the 
progress of our profession and our college. 

During the years you have spent in college you have in- 
creased in knowledge; you have learned much about how to 
teach others; you have made a start in the philosophy of life 
and a beginning in the philosophy of an educated man or 
woman. I sincerely trust that each member of the class of 
1934 may become that "more adaptable individual to the end 
that he may serve highly and with enthusiasm."

Four years! Is it possible? How long, and yet how short! 


I hear sounds of pitch pipes and gym whistles 

I see girls many, many girls preparing what? oh, yes fresh- 
man teas 

So much artistic, dramatic, and musical ability required of ordinary human 
beings! Heartbreaking! 

Sophomore year with its first taste of actual teaching. 

Training School 

"Projects" (The password, the by-word, the catch-word) Projects in history, 

in methods, in everything else, it seemed 

Well, if others had lived through it, we guessed we could, too. And we did 

The "Dancing Sophomores" showed signs of growth. 

Junioryear so short a time spent together. We hardly had time to tell each 

other about "the school in which I trained" .... 

B. N. S. changed to B. T. C 

The passing of our beloved leader 

Just think, next year we'll be "daisy-chained!" 

And Senior year with its staccato pattern of activities 

Gay hand-blocked Christmas cards 

Photographs strips of comic snaps to exchange and laugh over 

.... sweet and dignified pictures for remembrance. 

Senior Prom Class Day Graduation 

Goodbye! Good luck!

"Of soul sincere, 
In action faithful, and in honor clean." 

To see her run down the field you would be sure her 
only desire was to be a star athlete. To see her in the 
throes of poetic composition you would say poetic 
fame was her only goal. But should you see her on the 
way home you would say certainly her aim was smart 
sophistication. In each case you would be wrong, for 
Helen's great enthusiasm forces her to do well what- 
ever she does.

"Her gesture, motion, and her smile, 
Her wit, her voice, our hearts beguile." 

Pep, vim, and giggles! That's Dot. Whenever you 
wish a good time, visit room 46. Leave your scowls 
and frowns behind you, for Dot will not tolerate them. 
They do things to her. The audience is never bored 
whether Dot is portraying a mere elm tree rustling in 
the breeze or the distinguished Mrs. De Hooley— accent 
on the "Hoo."

"Knowledge comes but wisdom lingers." 

A tense silence; no one knows the answer. A life- 
saver— and quite often the answer is not from the text- 
book but from clear thinking. A merry din— one high 
laugh above the rest — the instigator, Agnes, in the 
second of her dual role.

"True delicacy, that most beautiful heart leaf of 


Exhibits itself most significantly in little things." 

At lastwe havefound out who entertains Mr. Webster. 
Olga has become an authority on correct pronunciation. 
Was it in pure self-preservation? As an avocation we 
wouldn't be surprised to hear of the foundation of an 
Anderson Museum in Groton where Olga could preserve 
her beloved lanterns, spinning wheels, dinner gongs, 
St. Bernard puppies, and beautiful books.

A grin— a smile— then dimples! A muse— a sigh-

we'll never know the answer. That's what makes it 
interesting! But of this we are certain: Madeline is a 
steady, sincere friend as well as a dimpling and lovable

"I never knew her loveliness 
Until she smiled on me." 

"Ev" delights to discourse for hours on art or clothes 
but don't go into detail on the merits of your relatives! 
The only thing which can be depended upon to upset 
her permanent good nature is the thought of a possible 
"Geog"test. Butwhy should it? Evelyn has overcome 
greater difficulties than that.

"Words, phrases, fashions pass away, 
But truth and nature live through all." 

Shhhh---"Beede Bumps" is sleeping (and I'll wager 
she's dreaming of math or "bugs")! Never mind, 
Ethel, when you're awake, your sincerity and unusual 
sense of humor attract and hold us. May all your 
dreams materialize!

"It was you cast over me the spell of music." 

Eva plays and Eva sings and is ever ready for fun. 
But we have also observed a well-worn brief case which 
bears mute evidence of a different Eva.

"She lives on the sunny side and she would have all 
of us come over there with her." 

A laugh, a song, a twinkling eye, a flash of red, all 
make up that dynamic personality—Sylvia. Bracelets 
and earrings, gay handkerchiefs and chic hand bags 
speak of Sylvia's vivid self.

"With her glad golden hair 

As airy and blithe as a blithe bird in air." 

One of three from the first, the Porthos of the group, 
Phyllis has inevitably been identified with good time 
and jollity. She looks the part. But then the smile 
fades and Phyllis is trying hard to be studious. She 
succeeds wonderfully but we are always happy when 
the assignments are finished and she can be natural.

French Club 2, 3, 4, Treasurer 4. 

"Sometimes quiet is an unquiet thing." 

We hate to accuse Mildred of being miserly but we 
suspect a hoard of wit hidden under a quiet exterior. 
Do you know why? She reveals it to a few friends who 
retail it to us and thus we are amused without knowing 
the source. 


82 South Main Street, Middleboro. W. A. A. 2, 3, 4. 
Day Student Council 3. Library Club 4. 

"A little bit of seriousness 
Mixed with a dash of fun." 

Mildred's idea of a throne is a desk chair in the lib- 
rary, and of heaven a request from a timid student. 
On the throne she feeds her love of books and work, 
and in heaven her desire to be of service.

"A friend she is who sets her heart upon us, 
Is happy with us and delights in us." 

Olive is the unusual person who lives her beliefs. 
Her devotion to scouting and her exemplification of 
its laws have been evidenced not only by her splendid 
work in that field but also in whatever she has under- 
taken in a social or academic way.

"To those who know thee not, no words can paint! 
And those who know thee, know all words are faint!" 

Why is Harriet's room always crowded? Because 
"Hat" can play ball with her athletic friends, enthuse 
with her artistic friends, dance with her social friends, 
and be happy with them all.

"She perceiveth that her merchandise is good; 
Her candle goeth not out by night." 

A leader with high ideals, intelligent application to 
tasks, and persistance in the pursuit of well-considered 
objectives, Madeline's interests and abilities are many 
and varied, extending to languages, music, literature, 
dramatics, history, and art. Her dignity, envied by 
all, reflects her strength of character.

"Forever piping songs forever new." 

Even though changeable people may be interesting, 
unchangeable people are more comfortable. Reliabil- 
ity seems to be one of Doris' most endearing qualities. 
Her unceasing interest in all forms of music, her love 
for symphonies, concerts, and clarinets are unbounded.

"Comrade of the ocean, playmate of the hills." 

Her "sea-walled island" seems to have contributed 
great and lovely qualities to Priscilla, for although she 
is small, she commands attention by her dignity, which 
we style one of her greatest assets. Gentlemen, at 
last here is a girl who speaks only if she has something 
to say.

"Eyes too expressive to be blue 
Too lovely to be gray." 

Needing only the slightest provocation to absent 
herself from the atmosphere of study and contempla- 
tion, Helen is always eager to obey her frequent im- 
pulses to relax. Moreover, she has the faculty of unit- 
ing the serious with the gay. For, gifted with a fine 
perception of truth, Helen is most capable of imparting 
opinions well worth hearing.

"With thy clear keen joyance 
Languor cannot be." 

Here's to Mary, possessor of a spontaneous and de- 
lightful wit which gives some hint of her inherent 
cleverness. When Mary's pensive, she possesses an 
elusive quality that is a diverting contrast to her gaiety.

"True to her work, her word, and her friends." 

Mary and kindness are utterly inseparable. She 
shares her lunch, her ability, or happiness impartially. 
And it's fortunate that Mary needs so little time for 
study for she demands a great deal for fun.

"As what she seemed to be, she was, 
Alike to all, herself, sincere and true." 

When Grace realizes her ambition to write a book, 
we hope it won't be on the modern novel or Victorian 
poetry which she delves into with equal enthusiasm, 
but on correct etiquette for college students which 
she has so unknowingly imparted to us.

Eldora is a girl of many moods varying from laughter 
to sadness. Few in the class have been better students 
than she and few have there been who could see more 
quickly the humor of a situation. From the French 
comes Eldora's vivaciousness; from the Americans, her 
patient ambition.

"My heart is like a rainbow shell

Her changing moods never let those who know her

"Not very tall, not very small 
But sweet and fair and liked by all." 

Barbara's lovely hair typifies her personality. Its 
graceful waves are repeated in her gentle manners, 
its smoothness is the evenness of her disposition, and 
the occasional golden light in it is the reflection of 
her mood when she discovers some appreciated bit of 
poetry or fine bit of music.

Giveth grace unto every art." 

Libby is forever getting paint on her hands and face, 
not because she's careless — oh, no, she's painting 
Venetian seas for prom decorations, block-printing 
Christmas cards, or designing lovely book covers. And 
we sometimes wonder whether Libby has to burn the 
midnight oil to be able to make such clever "geog" 
answers or whether they come as naturally as her 
piercing shrieks.

Bertha is a dual personality the serene and smiling

Ruth has lived these four years to the fullest extent 
by enthusiastically participating in every type of ac-

She is a representation of enthusiasm plus, and is 
ever bubbling over with good spirits and fun. Look 
at those notebook covers strained to the limit with 
clippings and proofs of her own journalistic ability. 
But Bessie doesn't spend all her time on these volumin-

Steel under velvet best describes Anna. Yielding

is fine for a grand comrade.

"Christmas won't be Christmas without any pres-

see how anyone could refuse Alice anything. But for 
all her youthfulness, Alice has gone a long way towards 
appreciating that life goes on even under heavy assign-

more than momentarily dimmed.

She is very shy of using it." 

Life without variety bores Louise so it is not surpris-

"And for they looked but with divining eyes

Two of the silly, friendly things which we shall re-

of those surprises creeping through the surface of

Seriousness striving with flippancy — yes, that's 
Ruth. Ask her about a new novel or the latest scienti-

Her pet hobby of asking questions is one source of her

To accurately gauge Carolyn's feelings, one must 
study the varying aspects of her eyes. Watch them 
sparkle and laugh when she is with a group of friends, 
hiking, singing, reading poetry, or just talking. Then, 
start to argue, be sarcastic, or merely mention trains 
and you'll witness a display of snapping blackness and 
darting yellow lights which her friends heed as storm 
warnings. But there's more brightness than darkness

Her interests vary from liking Scottie dogs with plaid

Blue-eyed, blond "Allie" likes soft lightsand "smooth

Hope, the guiding star of youth. 

Now our goals will suit our ways 
Beyond the realms of college days- 
And we'll use thy beacon light 
To lead us always in the right.

Junior History 

Juniors — Training! In the minds of the students at Bridgewater these words 
are almost synonymous. But not until one becomes a Junior can he be appreciative 
of thefull significance of the word, "Training". The class is necessarily broken up, 
and never, during the entire year, is the whole class together. One group returns 
from the teaching field only to have another depart in that direction. 

Sometimes, however, we do manage to get a fair sized group together. Then 
indeed are the Juniors jolly! Prom, the important event of the social year, was 
shared with the Sophomores. To the music of a private band we danced in an en- 
ticingly spooky garden beneath the sea. 

We find it hard to realize that three years have passed since we trod these halls 
in green bow ties, red caps, and yellow hair ribbons. Our increasing responsibilities 
haveforced ustomakethe mostof every minuteof thisyear, butwe have thoroughly 
enjoyed taking an active part in college affairs. 

For some of us it has been the last year at Bridgewater. Those of us who return 
next fall will miss the friends who have left us. But — even the best of friends must 

Here's wishing you the best there is!

"Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity, 
And accomplishes no victories without it." 

Her theme song — "Come on — are ya' com in'?" Ready 
to go — Quick to start — Fun on the way! Have you a

heritage of other Norwood girls.

"Why worry what tomorrow brings? 
Today is here— and now's the time for song and jest." 

A striking figure in any gathering with that straight- 
forward and cheerful optimism. Can her smile have 
anything to do with the easy leadership she exercises? 
Quick sympathy— a touch of wit— a readiness for fun— 
and a love for poetry portray "Von."

"Moderation is the silken string running through the

"The fairest garden in her looks, 
And in her mind the wisest books." 

There is something fragile and delicate about Velma

Velma would never sign a code which would limit the 
hours of work she spends aiding others.

Tall, gracious, and artistic! A true Bridgewater

We all love "Ginny's" hair, especially on the days when

"And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew,

One of the qualities we have often envied in a certain

"To be merry best becomes you,

Because to life she gives the best." 

No one ever more willing and generous! No one 
ever more fired by ambition! Always the memory of

touch of a friend. She's a typist par excellence — and 
O! her marionnettes! Accomplishing so much in a

Her independence adds a zest!" 

Pat says she came to college for experience in all

of Pat's nature.

One can never come within the influence of Doris'

"And her voice was the warble of a bird, 
So soft, so sweet, so delicately clear."

her to take into any classroom. To know Hazel is to

Introducing our inimitable pal "Sheenie"! What a 
personality! She was born under a lucky star and is 
intimate with the Blarney Stone. Popular with all — 
she keeps us amused, for she is unconsciously a prolific 
source of humor, seriousness tempering her humour 
with jollity. We foresee a tempestuous but most 
complete future. Incidentally — what does she dream 
about in class — or is she asleep?

The life of a Sophomore may not be as novel as a Freshman's, as complacent as 
a Junior's, or as inspiring as a Senior's, but (this much we're all agreed upon) — it 
most certainly is a relief! 

Gone were those doubtful misgivings and inward trepidations, the bugbears of 
our Freshman days, when we returned to college last fall as Sophomores. After 
sailing successfully through the stormy seas of initiation, teas, socials, classes, and 
interviews, we felt competent enough to tackle anything. 

As usual, our first "tackling" proposition was the eventful and time-honored 
one of initiating the Freshmen into the mysteries of this college life. To be honest, 
it is still a bit doubtful in our minds whether we initiated the Freshmen or they 
initiated, and are still initiating, us. Nevertheless, we do know that everyone had 
an enjoyable time. 

When the Freshmen were acclimated, we turned our attention to the annual 
Sophomore Social held in November, and later to the Sophomore-Junior Prom in 
January. Although at times we feared the plans for the joint dance were suffering 
from the after-effects of "Old Man Depression", the dance itself was a gala occasion- 
asocial and financial success, and one which will be long remembered for its unique 
decorations, and deep-sea atmosphere. 

The most important event of the year for most of us was our first experience in 
the teaching profession — the six weeks of training-school. It was a marvel to us 
that six weeks approached with such inward quakings could pass so quickly and 

We have had a good share in both scholastic and athletic fields this year. Now 
we are well on the straight and narrow path to the aspirations of our youthful days. 
Soon, we, too, will become members of that invincible long "arm of the law" known 
as "the Juniors."

Having heard the call to the profession, in September, 1933, a group of recently 
"looked up to" High School seniors dotted the campus at B. T. C. If you didn't 
know them by their bewildered expressions, you couldn't miss the boys' large kelly 
green silk bow ties or the girls' light blue hair ribbons and embroidered bibs. Dur- 
ing the month of initiation "Freshies" were immediately put in their place of in- 
feriority by standing in the presence of upper classmen, opening doors, and empty- 
ing lockers. 

After two such weeks they were prepared for anything from the treacherous 
"Sophs" when they announced a compulsory attendance initiation party. How- 
ever, it proved a lively division competition of gamesand fun atwhich D2 carried off 
the laurelsof bluebootiesbutatwhichalldivisionsleftbibsand bows. Blue romper 
day held on the lower campus followed. This was also sponsored by the Sophomores 
and D4 was victorious this time. All these events proved our upper classmen a group 
of good sports and made the Freshmen feel themselves more a part of the college. 
In fact they were all now feeling the spirit of Bridgewater through the friendly guid- 
ance of big sisters and brothers. 

The girls entered the social realm with a series of teas given under the direction 
of Miss Pope and held in the library during book week. 

In the sports program the Freshmen were not satisfied with a back seat and could 
boast of "Jerry" Long and Verne Bodwell on the first team of the basketball squad. 

Nor did the girls disappear into the background in the sports program. The 
hockey team under Connie Sullivan could boast of beating the seniors, but the sen- 
iors repayed this defeat in a victory over the winning Blue Flash basket-ball team 
under Kay Bran ley. 

Before the election of officers came an acquaintance social at which the candi- 
dates performed and other mem bers showed their abi I ity in decorati ng, entertai n i ng, 
and serving supper. 



In March, Ruth Koss, who had been conducting the class meetings, introduced 
the newly elected officers and left the class of '37 to sink or swim as it would. The 
first signs of their ability appeared in May with a Freshman dance. 

Thus ends a most interesting year, wherein the Freshmen, as observers to a large 
extent, became attached to B. T. C. and are looking forward eagerly to three years 
of increasing activity!

The student Cooperative Association is an important student organization of 
which every student attending the college becomes a member automatically with 

All student problems which do not fall under the jurisdiction of the faculty are 
taken care of by this organization. Within the association there are several councils 
which solve the problems most closely connected with their special function. Stu- 
dent Council is the most powerful ; it is by this organization that matters of great- 
est importance are initiated and action taken. This group strives to maintain the 
high standards of Bridgewater Teachers College, and works continually to improve 
all phases of college life. 

This year five new committees have been formed: election, chapel, handbook, 
bulletin board, and library. The chairman of each is a member of the Student 
Council. Through the formation of these committees, it is hoped that work will 
progress more efficiently. 

The Library Committee formed this year has proved very successful. The neces- 
sity for creating this committee arose when the council voted, earlier in the year, 
to charge a fine for overdue library books. The money received has been used for 
the purchase of several new books for the library. 

The need of a college songbook has been realized, and a committee has been ap- 
pointed to work with Miss Frieda Rand to obtain such a book. 

It is through the council that a charity fund, which gave health and happiness 
to some needy children of the Training School, was raised at Christmastime. The 
council also was in charge of the play, "Cinderella", which was presented under 
theauspicesof the Childrens' Theatre of New York. Itwasfeltby all the members 
of the council that this opportunity for children and adults to see an unusual and 
worthwhile performance should not be overlooked. The profit realized from the 
presentation started a fund for the purchase of a radio or moving- picture machine 
for the auditorium. Nathalie Thibau , t) Secre tary

Dormitory Council started the year most energetically, and many things have 
been accomplished. 

Two new lamps were purchased to further beautify Normal Hall Reception Room, 
and Dormitory Council plans to buy two magazines a month for this room. 

Alumni Week-end and Open House were both great successes. Theformer brought 
back many of the graduates and the latter brought many friends and parents. 

The serving of demi-tasse in the reception room on Sunday, which was started 
last year, is still being continued, with marked success. 

This year something entirely new was sponsored by Dormitory Council. The 
play "Leave It to Dad" was presented March 7. Both men and women of the college 
took part. The proceeds from this play were to be given to assist in the establish- 
ment of the Esther Tarr Student Loan Fund. 

One of the most important projects started by Dormitory Council is this Student 
Loan Fund in memory of Esther Tarr, who graduated from the college in the class 
of 1933, and who passed away during her first year of teaching. This fund is to help 
worthy students of the college to meet the lesser college expenses. 

One of the many problems that the Council is working on is that of providing 
more time for study for those who need it. 

During the Christmas season, a sale of inexpensive gifts was held. This was 
very successful. 

We hope that the Dormitory Council to whom we leave our problems will be as 
successful as the Dormitory Council of 1933-34 feels they have been.

Inter-Club Council is an organization of the Student Cooperative Association 
whose purpose is to recommend regulations to the Student Council and to work 
on problems of club management. The membership consists of the presidents of 
clubs, their faculty advisers and Campus Comment and Alpha editors. The presi- 
dent of Student Cooperative Association presides at the meetings. 

Several problems concerning club programs and duties of officers have been 
discussed and suggestions offered in the way of solution. 

Among the difficulties studied this year was that of the point system which is 
now revised so that more students throughout the college will have the opportunity 
to hold offices. This matter was left in the hands of a committee which decided, 
after having gained the necessary information, which offices in the various organiza- 
tions should be classed as major and which minor with the number of points for 
each. The student holding a major office may receive five to ten points, and one 
holding a minor office may receive one to four points. 

The chapel programs presented by the clubs have been considered cultural and 
in keeping with our profession. It is hoped that the high standard set will be main- 
tained and improvement made from year to year.

Because of the coming of transfer students from other colleges, the large fresh- 
man class, and the fact that many dormitory students have become commuters, 
the commuters have added considerably to their happy family. 

No Christmas party was held this year as is customary, but the commuters joined 
the dormitory students and attended "Ye Old Festival" given us by the Faculty. 

However, the commuters did hold a highly successful Artists' Ball with a typical 
miniature artist's studio as the most unique part of the decorations. Living tabl- 
eaux by well-known authors posed by the students comprised the entertainment. 

Work has been continued on the added attractiveness of the commuters' room, 
and more plans as yet uncompleted are in progress. 

The commuters are still adding to their service ware, as two dozen cocktail glasses, 
two grapefruit plates, and six bowls have been purchased at Miss Pope's suggestion. 

The most welcome news is that Dr. Scott has recognized the commuters and has 
invited them to eat in the dining hall at a very low price. Cafeteria style of eating 
has been done away with by many of the students and will be by many more as time 

goes on.

Social Activities Committee endeavors to encourage a spirit of genuine friendli- 
ness among dormitory and day students through informal social gatherings. Its 
program is varied to insure leisure well spent in social recreations. The first of these 
attempts was the Acquaintance Social where the freshmen met the awe-inspiring 
upperclassmen (and were duly impressed) and the upperclassmen greeted the new- 
comers, approval strongly registered in each appraising glance. 

Amid banners and blue eagles came the N. R. A. Social — a huge success. Many 
worthwhile suggestions for more leisure were presented through a series of tableaux. 

A more dignified affair was our next attempt — the Alumni Tea Dance, one of the 
happiest occasions of the year; for here, old acquaintances met anew. 

May the committee of next year have all the success possible, and accept the 
best wishes of the committee of 1934.

Revising and appropriating a familiar quotation, the Culture Fund Committee 
knows that "you can please some of the people all the time, but you cannot please 
all of the people all of the time." Those persons whose task and opportunity it is 
to furnish worth-while and outstanding speakers for the college, try to bring satis- 
faction to most of the group, most of the time. 

In this college where emphasis is on professional education, some of our oppor- 
tunities for cultural development come from the programs presented through the 
efforts of the Culture Fund Committee. Three members from the faculty, and 
three members from each of the three upper classes try to procure speakers who will 
benefit and please at least a majority of the students and faculty. This means that 
any year's program may include a variety of subjects in order to satisfy the largest 
number possible. So far, this year's schedule has included an editor, an artist, and 
a professor and expert on far eastern problems. 



Edward Weeks, editor of the Atlantic Monthly, spoke to us "From the Editor's 
Easy-Chair". From his talk one may say that the editor's easy chair is non-exis- 
tent. It had never occurred to some of us that an editor does not find his greatest 
joy in spurning the painful efforts of unhonored and unsung authors. This detail 
is submerged in the editor's aim to make his publication a good one, a journal to 
satisfy critical readers. Mr. Weeks is an editor who reads an amazing amount of 
material, all that is submitted to him, and selects that which reaches the aims of 
the Atlantic. His lecture ranks with the superior magazine published under guid- 
ance of its editor. 

From the artist and lecturer, Gerrit Beneker, came a new suggestion for the solu- 
tion of problems arising from widespread economic unbalance. "The Influence of 
Art in Economics" was Mr. Beneker's contribution to the many suggestions for 
ending a major difficulty. To illustrate his talk, Mr. Beneker used slides of paintings 
he has made of workingmen in many places. Mr. Beneker finds vision, sturdiness, 
courage, and hope in men working in places like the blast furnace. The artist's 
cry was for more men of vision to complement the efforts of political and economic 
experts in making our nation the kind of nation that real Americans want it to be. 
Mr. Beneker's splendid talk was strengthened by the idealism of the man himself. 

We talk much, read some, and know a little about present relations between 
Japan, China, and Russia. Professor George Blakeslee of Clark University was a 
member of the Lytton Commission to examine Japanese and Chinese claims in the 
struggle over Manchuria, or Manchukuo as Japan has since called it. The investi- 
gators found Japan culpable, but the Nipponese calmly proceed on their way. With 
his detailed information, we were glad to hear Dr. Blakeslee's reassuring report on 
the improbability of war between Japan and the United States or between Japan 
and Russia. 

The final program of the second term was a lecture by Tony Sarg entitled "Be- 
hind the Scenes with the Marionettes." Mr. Sarg is noted for his work in establish- 
ing the marionette theatre in the United States. He is also known for his illustra- 
tions in children's books, and has achieved marked success in commercial art. In 
his lecture to us Mr. Sarg spoke briefly of the history of marionettes and told some- 
thing of their construction. For the greater part of the hour he entertained us with 
descriptive anecdotes concerning his career. Mr. Sarg completely won his audience 
with his caricature of the head of the mathematics department. 

These are examples of the uses of the Culture Fund which tries to bring us the 
knowledge of progress here and everywhere through persons who have made major 
contributions to that progress.

Woodward Hall 

During the past year the changes which took place throughout the life of the 
college were present also in Woodward Hall. 

September found the housing conditions much changed, with people rooming 
two in one room, some empty rooms, and the majority of the Gates House Girls 
residents of Woodward. The vacant rooms have proved advantageous, since they 
have provided the day students with the opportunity of remaining overnight when 
affairs are going on at the college which they would like to attend. 

Woodward held its first College Dance and was pleased with the enthusiasm with 
which it was received. 

The basement of the dormitory has aided in the production of many such events 
as the Mardi Gras, Dramatic Club presentations and other such occurrences, since 
it is here that the girls planned and worked on the decorations. 

The work begun on the reception room last year was completed this year with 
the purchase of new draperies. 

Another pleasant addition to the dormitory was the new radio in room four, 
which has now become another student's room. 

The food sales of past years have been continued. 

A group of girls who, in their junior year, planned new decorations for the down- 
stairs recreation room were made a committee to work on the execution of their 

With this record we close the year and hope that future residents of Woodward 
Hall will spend as many happy hours as have the girls of 1934.

Normal Hall welcomed its first House Mother, Miss Henderson, in September. 
She proved to be sympathetic, helpful, and kind to the girls as they needed her. It 
was with regret that we, upon our return from the February vacation, found she had 
been transferred to Woodward Hall. We sincerely hope she will enjoy her duties 

But Normal Hall girls have found Miss Gassett well suited for this position. In 
the short time she has been with us, her friendliness and cheer have won for her a 
warm reception from all. 

Christmas, 1933, as usual found the dormitory gaily bedecked with wreaths and 
gay lights. A tree, decorated with lights and tinsel, in our reception room proved 
that the old custom of having Christmas trees is still very popular. The wreaths, 
fashioned of yew and brightly colored fruits, admirably suited the colonial doors 
upon which they were hung. The fruit, however, proved to be too great a tempta- 
tion to some little urchins who felt they needed it more than we. Thus, we were 
kept busy redecorating the wreaths. 

When Spring came, Normal Hall found itself fitted out with a new coat of paint 
on the inside. Our rooms have taken on a much more attractive appearance since 
they have been painted. It will be interesting to recall that this painting was done 
by the CWA workers as part of President Roosevelt's relief program. 

The underclassmen of Normal Hall wish each of its seniors a prosperous lifetime 
of cheer and contentment.

Campus Comment, the college newspaper, which is written and edited entirely 
by the students, has several aims, namely: — to publish news stories, interviews, 
editorials, and sport news; to furnish practice in writing for those interested in 
journalistic work; to serve as a unifying element for the members of the college; 
and to uphold the finest traditions of the college. The accomplishments of the 
paper for this year have been these: setting a regular publication date; gradually 
eliminating literary material such as short stories, long poems, essays, and book 
reports, and substituting short news items, human interest stories, sports, and 
short poems; and acknowledging our connection with the world of education by 
noting some progress in education each month. Below are examples, on the left, 
of a typical "news story", and on the right, of a typical "human interest story". 

Day Students Have Lunch at College. 

The opportunity of having luncheon 
in the dining hall at Normal Hall was 
offered to the day students by Dr. Zenos 
E. Scott. 

The students, through the purchase 
of strips of either five or ten tickets, 
may obtain a hot mid-day meal at a 
minimum cost. 

That the day students are in favor 
of this new plan may be seen by the 
increasing number who came to lunch- 

One of the advantages of this change 
is the increased opportunity for closer 
contact between the day students and 
the dormitory students. 

Instructor Nibbles While Class Starves. 

Do they need a lunchroom in the 
administration building of the college? 
It might help Mrs. Durgin if there were 
one, for Mr. Durgin has to have a small 
"snack" between meals. 

The A1 mathematics class had just 
come in from the lower campus where 
they had been surveying, and were 
awaiting instructions. Mr. Durgin 
came in, opened a desk drawer, took 
out a sandwich, and began to eat, while 
the members of the class looked on

Before starting on the momentous events in the annals of the Dramatic Club for 1933-34, it 
is necessary to go back and pick up the thread of our story where the last number of the Alpha left 

May 19 — Ne'er to be forgotten night! One of the best successes that Miss Moffitt has ever produced 
was the "Taming of the Shrew". Years hence when the memory dims, let this Alpha

June 1 — One of the events of our club year always anticipated with much delight is the annual 
banquet given to the graduating members at Wyman's Tea Room. 

June 6 — Tryouts! With what hopes and fears that white-faced, shaking group took their places 
on the platform and presented Shakespeare as it had never been presented before. The 
lucky ones to be taken in that night were: Dorothy Alexander, Irene Kidd, Ruth Davis, 
Elsa Johnson, Barbara Schmalz. 

June 13 — These new members were officially and socially received into the club by their sisters at 
a reception. 

Interval of Recuperation 

Sept. 19 — Initial meeting of a year of stage successes and happiness under the ever loving guidance 
of Mother Moffitt.

Ruth Mannion and Ruth Davis were business and stage managers respectively. 

Dec. 15 — Another one of our happy times is our Christmas party when we can forget our dignity 
and really enjoy ourselves. For three years "Gynny" has been our Santa and distributed 
our nonsense gifts. 

Dec. 22 — Dramatic Club contributes in a large measure to that lovely Christmas spirit which per- 
vades our campus every year by presenting its traditional Christmas drama, "Why the 
Chimes Rang" and "The Littlest Shepherd" alternately. This year it was the turn of 
the latter. 

Jan. 16 — If you were observing you would have noticed that every member of Dramatic Club was 
present at "Cinderella". It is the policy of our club to support productions of this kind 
by attending all plays which come within our reach. 

Shakespearian Play — At this writing our cast for this year had not been chosen but our choice of 
play had been decided. We are to give "As You Like It". This, we feel, will be of infinite 
value to the members who will be future teachers in High School, as the play is in so many 
curriculums. May this presentation be as successful as all our other plays have been.

With thoughtful organization and careful execution, a variety of programs has 
been presented to the club. Each member in serving her fellow members has given 
freely of her time and effort, thus enriching the experience of all. 

The social side of our natures has not been neglected. Recreation, fellowship, 
and genuine pleasure have been enjoyed by faculty and student members alike. 
Well fixed in our memories is the Saturday that we spent at West Dennis as guests 
of Miss Hill. 

On January twenty-fifth, a program consisting of reports on three new books on 
education, travel, and humor was presented to the college. 

Each girl has displayed a whole-hearted interest in the club, and in no small 
measure has gained not only information about books, but also closer connections 
with friends and faculty advisers.

Library Club has been privileged to bring before the college through the medium 
of the Book of the Month Club books which individual students might find too ex- 
pensive to purchase. 

Among the books received from this source is Henrik Van Loon's "Geography", 
a book of tremendous importance, not only to those students personally interested 
in geography, but also to those who are curious about this world of ours as that 
"small, dark object entirely surrounded by space." 

For the lover of drama, there is the book, "Play Parade", a collection of plays 
by Noel Coward, containing such sparkling hits as "Cavalcade", "Design for Living", 
"Private Lives", and "Bitter Sweet", all of which have come to the public by means 
of the stage and screen. There is a delightfully refreshing introduction by the 
author, in which he states his reasons for consenting to publish this volume of his 
representative plays. 

A challenging novel of timely interest is "Little Man, What Now?", a human 
story of a German family faced with the problem of adjustment to the economic 
upheaval the whole world is experiencing. 

These are but a sample of the wealth of literature we are fortunate to own through 
the co-operation of the Book of the Month Club.

Another eventful year for the Topics of the Day Club, the youngest club in the 

Beginning with the first meeting in September, when old and new members 
were welcomed; the club set forth to make this year better than either of the two 
preceding ones. New ideas for the meetings were introduced. The most popular 
type of discussion was explaining timely cartoons and their relation to current events. 
At another meeting, the topic, "The Recognition of Russia by the United States," 
wastreated as a socialized recitation with one member of the club leading discussion. 

The club again sold tonic and soup, and this business was made a success by the 
cooperation of its members. With some of the money received from these sales, 
the magazines Time, New Outlook, and Literary Digest were purchased for the Lib- 
rary to be used by members and others interested in current news. At Christmas a 
sum of money was contributed to the Welfare Fund of Bridgewater to be used for 
the needy. 

But perhaps the most thrilling experience of all was winning the banner for the 
best float at Mardi Gras. This float consisted of a large wire globe with the contin- 
ents in silver carried by four members representing President Roosevelt, Premier 
MacDonald, Chancellor Hitler, and Mussolini. 

It was decided this year to send delegates to cover timely lectures on significant 
world affairs in which there is some active interest. Following out this plan, three 
members attended a lecture given by Dr. Blakeslee at the Copley-Plaza on February 
3, concerning "the Far Eastern Question." Reports on this were then given at a 
later meeting. This proved to be so worthwhile that the club hopes to send other 
delegates to future lectures.

Loretta McHugh 

If you had attended the meetings of Topics of the Day you would have discover- 
ed that: 

We all turned rebels at the time of Cuba's revolution: 

A lively campaign was carried on in connection with the local and national elec- 

We did our best to cooperate with Congress by discussing the leading personalities 
and the many problems they have to face; 

In a debate we decided in favor of the NRA; 

We left the question, "Where are the Affairs in the Far East Leading?" still un- 
solved at the end of one discussion ; 

We indulged in a cartoon meeting in which everything was discussed from a 
Women's Current Events Club that had talked over every country and was obliged to 
turn into a sewing circle for lack of further material, to Roosevelt and his stormy seas; 

Theoretically we tried to settle affairs in Austria, but perhaps the Austrians went 
on their way oblivious to this fact. 

And so we hope to continue our discussions and settle at least to our own satis- 
faction, the topics of the day.

The Lyceum had as its purposes for 1933-34 the discussion of current events, the 
carrying on of worthwhile activities, in which all members participate, and some 
debating and special reports. 

Topics suggested for discussion were along economic and political lines. Re- 
cently the question "When and Where Will the Next War Be?" was discussed. "What 
Will You Do If War is Declared?" and "War Versus Peace", are other topics suggest- 
ed. The Roosevelt administration also drew to the center'of the field of attention. 

The Lyceum expects participation by its members in discussion of world problems 
for it is only in this way that the club can fulfill its major aims. 

Harold Brewer, 

From the Lyceum Forum — War: 

No war ever does any good and all wars do much harm. A majority of the mem- 
bers of this Lyceum declare that they will never take part in war. Students all 
over the land join us in this pledge. Groups of citizens on all sides are taking the 
same stand. It is the government, not the people, which we must blame for war. 
Governments make war; people do not. And wars will stop when people refuse to 
support the governments which make war. It is for us to say that this day has 
come in America. 

School budgets: 

The results of a debate by members of Lyceum on, "Is the Compulsory Budget 
System the Best Way of Financing School Activities." was announced to the stu- 
dent body in the following note, "The affirmative wins. The vote was two to one. 
The committee was composed of two women and one man. Respectfully, 
George Durgin."

The Men's Club has been very successful in all its undertakings this year. 

The year was started with a banquet at which the Freshmen acted the dual part 
of entertainers and waiters. Our guest speaker of the evening was Dr. Scott. 

The next big event was Amateur Night, which proved to be a success socially 
and financially. The men of the college worked together to put on a show that will 
long remain in the memory of the audience. Who could forget the Senior men's 

The Men's Club Dance under the direction of Alfred Wood was another success. 

One of the most important public appearances of the Club was its production,

A movement in the school that interested the Men's Club more than any other 
is the attempt to make our proposed athletic field ready for use. It is much needed. 
We feel sure that if the other organizations in the school will work faithfully toward 
it, it will in a comparatively short time become more than a dream.

This year Science Club has broadened the field of its interests to include many 
branches of the lesser known sciences. This has been done mainly by the many and 
varied speakers which have been a feature of the meetings. Also, the work has been 
extremely practical, dealing with science from the view-point of how we may apply 
it in our everyday life. One of the most interesting speakers was Mr. Lamprey of 
Boston Teachers College, who demonstrated how a balanced aquarium is set up, 
and who left a beautiful mo del which has been a source of much admiration all the 
year. He also spoke on the proper materials to select for an aquarium and the care 
to give goldfish. Another outstanding event was the occasion when Mr. Peabody 
of Harvard spoke on "Heredity and Environment." Mr. Peabody is well known by 
most of the members because he has been to Bridgewater several times during the 
last two years; and because of the active interest he has displayed in Science Club 
affairs, he has been made an honorary member. Mr. Richter, a resident of Bridge- 
water, gave Science Club some very practical suggestions as to how a science teacher 
may supplement the textbooks by making use of local industries to teach the sub- 
ject. Also during the year, an alumnus of Bridgewater, Mr. Bartholomew Buckley, 
gave us an insight into a very different field of practical science. He is a taxidermist, 
and demonstrated with a beautiful cock pheasant just how the process of setting 
up a stuffed specimen takes place. 

Under the direction of Marie Johnson, chairman of the program committee, 
the meetings have had much variation. Besides the meetings devoted to outside 
speakers, we have discussed the formation of a Science Club in a Junior High School. 
We have become familiar with the projection apparatus which is used in the teaching 
of science, and have investigated some of the new books in the field, such as Paul 
de Kruif's "Men Against Death". This last was presented through a splendid re- 
view by Mr. Sukeforth. Some of the meetings have been devoted to keeping up with 
the trend of modern science by means of reports on current events from such maga- 
zines as the Science News Letters.

trip is planned for the benefit of the new members and the further enlightenment 
of those who were fortunate enough to go last year. Here one gets an opportunity 
to see and to compare the living and museum specimens at the same time, as the 
fishing grounds for biological specimens are here, as well as a museum containing 
the preserved forms. Another project planned is a visit to the bacteriological labora- 
tory of some large city such as Brockton or Boston, where we can see the actual work 
of men of science in the field of bacteria, and their effort to protect the health of the 

This year because of the number of people interested in science, the membership 
was enlarged to thirty-five, a larger number than the club has contained for some 

The work has been well carried on under the presidency of Chauncey Copeland 
and has benefited by the helpful interest of Miss Graves.

In the early War days back in 1914, a group of Normals, as they were then called, 
were grafting apple trees in the greenhouse. Apparently they were interested in 
what they were doing in spite of the possibilities of cut thumbs, for when it was 
necessary to leave they asked if they might come back and do some more. They 
complained of the lack of opportunity and time for gardening work. Opportunity 
came in the form of Garden Club. 

Thus was the beginning of Garden Club, or T. C. as it is better known, although 
the meaning of T. C. is known only to members. And so, too, came the first aims 
of the club "to promote interest in and increase knowledge of horticulture and agri- 
culture primarily in the State Normal School at Bridgewater." 

As our school has grown and is now the State Teachers College at Bridgewater 
so, too, has the interest in and the size of Garden Club increased. Because of this 
increased size and interest, an afternoon group was initiated to accommodate those 
unable to attend the evening meetings. 

If you should walk down Park Avenue in Bridgewater on the first or third nights 
of the school months about 6:30 o'clock you would see small groups sauntering down 
the paths in the garden to the greenhouse. During the winter months when it is 
dark at that time, two bright lights shine towards the street — the headlights of Mr. 
Stearns's car lighting the way for T. C. members coming through the garden to a 

This past year, we feel, has been not only useful but interesting and enjoyable 
as well. 

At our meetings, after a short business meeting, talks on different phases of 
gardening or in fact on anything pertaining to gardening have been given by mem- 
bers. Then, before we did our actual gardening work Mr. Stearns very often brought 
out a large basket of apples, apples of every kind, color, size, and shape. This was 
an important part of the meeting.

1st row — D. Wilde, M. Cassidy, D. Stenberg, P. Holmes, Mr. Stearns, A. Tripp, D. Clarner, O. Smith, V. Grenier. 

The type of gardening work depended on the season. In the fall we planted 
bulbs and made hard and soft wood cuttings and later planted seeds and then in 
the spring worked out of doors. 

The results of our gardening work benefit not only the members themselves but 
the whole school as well. Our work with that of the other students is used in the 
school for many and varied occasions. Garden Club members care for the plants 
and flowers in the auditorium. 

The T. C. chapel program consisted of a "regular meeting" including the dis- 
cussion and even the apples. The annual social was held in the spring. 

Garden Club was represented at the Mardi Gras parade with a float showing 
three Greek goddesses representing grain, flowers, and fruit — Ceres, Flora, and Po- 
mona respectively. 

Besides planting seeds and bulbs, making cuttings, and having their annual 
social, T. C. has enjoyed a bonfire supper and trips to various places of interest. 
Last year, too, we sent representatives to the Arbor Day exercises of the Old Bridge- 
water Historical Society. 

So, we really and sincerely feel that our time and energy spent in the Garden 
Club has been truly worthwhile and that T. C. has been a great success. 

In mentioning the success of T. C. it would be impossible not to mention how 
much of this has been due to the unfailing interest, enthusiasm, and help of our 
faculty adviser and friend, Mr. Stearns.

Hobbies are treasures! With this idea in mind a treasure chest filled with hob- 
bies of the club members was the theme for the Mardi Gras float this year. A 
hobby surely provides a source of wealth and real adventure for anyone who pursues 
a specific bent or fancy. 

Today, more than before, hobbies play an important part in everyone's life. Wide- 
spread interest in this particular pastime has been stimulated recently by Philip 
Lord and his famous schooner, "The Seth Parker". Tomorrow, with the ever in- 
creasing demand for leisure, hobbies will continue to function as a very personal 
part of oneself. 

Nor are members of this College unmindful of this fact. Hobbies from the col- 
lection of stamps to milk bottle caps, from coins to buttons, are represented within 
Hobby Club. Although each member has her own "pet" hobby, it is not confined 
to her alone. All share in the benefits of each other's hobby. Unusual and interest- 
ing information is contributed by the different members at club meetings, thereby 
creating enthusiastic and enjoyable talks throughout the year, — always different, 
always new, yet always valuable. 

At Christmas, members made toys and small useful gifts which were donated to 
K. P. Club for distribution among children in Bridgewater. Another worthy pro- 
ject carried out by the club was the completion of a set of dolls, which now represents 
different countries. These are to be used not only by the Hobby Club, but by any 
member of the College wishing them for exhibitional purposes. 

Enrichment of his knowledge about things in general is sought by every student. 
In what better way could this be accomplished than by learning interesting facts 
about otherwise commonplace material? 

Hobby Club offers this opportunity.

Camera Club has finished a year of work which has proven especially interesting 
and particularly valuable to its members. Much has been accomplished, because 
this year the program was systematically made out with a definite requirement for 
each month which must be met by everyone. By means of this, the members ac- 
tually learned how to do many new things in the field of photography; as a result 
of the year's work, they have a well developed hobby and a working knowledge of 
many of the fundamentals, upon which they can build in the years to come. The 
requirements consisted of learning how to develop and print a film, a successful 
indoor picture, how to make a satisfactory enlargement, a slide or blueprint, and 
lastly, how to color an enlargement. 

Members have been especially interested in freak photography and have been 
trying their hand at producing weird effects as well as reading up on the subject in 
a fascinating new book, purchased by Camera Club this year, called "Photographic 
Amusements" by Woodbury. 

The activities have been many and varied. We have had several interesting lec- 
ture meetings on the history of photography and the art of taking and developing 
pictures successfully. Mr. Huffington explained some of the larger cameras, and 
gave individual members instructions in using the graflex camera with which he 
takes most of the pictures of the college activities. I am sure that the members of 
the club will long remember the field trip during which each one painfully and labor- 
iously climbed the ladder with Mr. Denton's able assistance, to the roof of Boyden 
Hall to take a picture of the surrounding country. The social side of club life was 
not neglected as several outings were held during the course of the year — one par- 
ticularly memorable being at Parker's Homestead where Mr. Huffington fought gal- 
lantly to maintain his superiority over the feminine element in the game of slapjack. 

During the first term, the activities of the club were carried on under the able 
leadership of our vice-president, Grace Knox, while John Bates was out training. 
It was at this time that new members were admitted, the quota being limited to 
Freshmen in order to have a foundation to build upon next year. 



Row 2— Mr. Huffington, W Quinn, M. Cassells, J. Bates, A. Brown, T. Westerling, H. Mears. 
Row 1— A. Athan, M. Campbell, N. Thibeault, G. Knox, R. Koss, M. Kelley. 

Camera Club was given a new room by Dr. Scott, in which to carry on its activi- 
ties — the physics laboratory in the administration building. This gives us a better 
chance for successful developing and printing of pictures because of a more suitable 
temperature than did the room which the club previously had in Normal Hall. 
Another innovation was a change in the time of meeting from Monday afternoon to 
Tuesday afternoon; evening meetings being held only when printing or developing 
is done. 

Camera Club owes much of its accomplishment to the wholehearted interest 
and guidance of its adviser, Mr. Huffington. r th K «; t 


After you have learned the operation of your camera, there are but three things to remember 
that are necessary for good results: 1 — correct focus to assure sharp, distinct images; 2 — proper 
exposure to bring a technically good negative that will yield a clear print; 3 — good composition 
which makes picture pleasing to observe. 

Set the focus by placing the pointer over the figures in feet on the focusing scale nearest the 
estimated distance of the principal object to be photographed. The focus should be set at 25 feet 
for ordinary pictures; the sharpest part of the picture will be the objects at that distance from the 
camera, but everything from about 15 to 40 feet will be in good focus. When the principal object 
is nearer or farther away than 25 feet the focus should be moved accordingly. 

In taking outdoor pictures with folding camera having double lens the 1/25 second speed and 
f.11 or 16 stop are recommended for ordinary subjects. With single lens folding cameras the 1/25 
shutter speed and stop no. 1 are usually best. With box cameras simply make a snapshot for all 
average pictures. Snapshots should be made only with subject in sunlight unless Verichrome 
film is used. 

In taking pictures of rapidly moving objects use a fast shutter speed and a large opening, and 
do not get closer than 20 to 25 feet. Even with a box camera you can take moving objects by stand- 
ing so that the object travels away from or toward the camera at an angle of 45 degrees. 

The simplest way to photograph interiors is to place the camera on a tripod or other rigid sup- 
port and make a time exposure by the daylight that enters through the windows and doors. The 
secret of success lies in controlling the light by raising or lowering the window shades so that the 
light will be as uniform as possible in those parts of the room that are to be photographed, and 
have the strongest light coming from behind the camera or from any one or more sides excepting 
that side of the room toward Which the lens is pointed. Use stop opening f.11 or 16 and exposure 
of from y 2 to 1 }•£ minutes varying with the amounts of light and the nature of the subject to be

Revolutions occur in Mexico, in South America, here, there, and everywhere, 
but none to compare with the revolution which has occurred in the Girl Scout Club 
of the State Teachers College at Bridgewater — a re-organization towards finer and 
more advanced methods for the realization of the Girl Scout ideals in the work of 
the young women of the club. 

The first bombshell burst September 18 at the first Court of Honor meeting, 
when our new president, Olive Britton, told us of the possibilities of the work for 
this year. Just listen to these interesting things that were presented, so different 
from what the club has previously done: — 

Leadership Training Course to aid in starting and planning troops of our own. 

Camping at South Hanson or Cedar Hill to give us outdoor fun and education. 

Brownie Pack for those who enjoy working with the younger children. 

Excursions to study the functions of public utilities, such as police and fire sta- 

Making of marionettes and presenting a play with them. 

Working with the town troop. 

When Miss Pope, Dean of Women, saw our plans and approved them, she agreed 
that we really had reason to be enthusiastic. 

Although we started so well, old man weather had disappointments in store 
for us, for our first event — a "Supper Hunt", which was to be held September 21 at 
the sandpit — had to be indefinitely postponed. Rainy weather seemed to be sched- 
uled inevitably for the Thursdays we planned the hikes. 

The first meeting was therefore held September 28 in the Demonstration Room. 
All the above plans were laid before the group of girls present — among whom fresh- 
men were predominant. The course in leadership and the camping trips were most 
popular with the girls. It was decided to have meetings twice a month. 

A tennis tournament was planned at this meeting to be held October 3 after

school — for those who were interested in this sport. The tournament proved to be 
a drawing card to quite a few members who played in spite of the cold day. 

The climax came with the camping trip to South Hanson over the holiday (Octo- 
ber^). About twenty girls started off after school Wednesday, October11, and land- 
ed at Camp Wampatuck about dark. Supper was cooked by the waterside — and did 
it taste good! After games and singing, the girls retired to the pleasant rooms in 
the "Cottage". It didn't take long to get breakfast and clean up in the morning. 
And then the time was devoted to games, canoeing, boating, and hiking. Dinner 
came soon and after that, an interval of more fun before supper. A tired but very 
happy crew returned to Bridgewater soon after supper. 

November 2, our director from Boston, Miss Helen Potter, came to our meeting 
and talked with us about our leadership course, "Tramping and Trailing", which 
would train us to be pioneer councilors in summer camps. 

November 14, Mrs. Edwin L. Pride, commissioner of the Somerville district, was 
our chapel speaker. 

November 16, Miss Elizabeth Fiske, director from Brockton, came to help us with 
our meeting, at which our course was really begun. 

The Girl Scouts participated in the "Mardi Gras Carnavalesque" held by the 
French Club, February 9. The float planned by the Girl Scouts represented Joan 
of Arc (the first real Girl Scout) with her banner leading the line of girls representa- 
tive of Scouting from the beginning. 

At the end of the year there was a grand wind-up, a weekend in which we used 
the knowledge we had gained throughout the year. This consisted of camping in 
the open, led by a representative from the state headquarters.

Kindergarten-Primary Club opened its year's program in October by welcoming 
new members. Our invitation party took the form of a supper hike. However, 
because of bad weather, we held our "hike" in the playroom of the Training School 
and ate our supper in the kindergarten. 

Later in October, two delegates were sent by the club to the convention of the 
Massachusetts State Kindergarten Association held in Brookline. The delegates 
visited several large kindergartens in Brookline and also heard a talk given by Mrs. 
Barnes, head of the Physical Education Department of the Brookline Public Schools. 
They brought back to the other members of the group many interesting and im- 
portant facts about kindergarten and its work. Seeing such intensive work being 
done in kindergarten, and also seeing the enthusiasm of the members of the Asso- 
ciation, strengthens our faith in the great value of kindergarten. 

The meetings of November and December were given to collecting, repairing, 
and making gifts for the needy children of Bridgewater. At our last meeting in 
December, we wrapped our gifts and then held a simple Christmas celebration of 
our own, singing carols and telling stories. 

In January we devoted our two meetings to our float for Mardi Gras. 

Some of the February, March, and April meetings were given over to speakers 
who gave us much valuable information and enjoyment. The other meetings of 
those months we spent in reading and discussing educational textbooks concerning 
the kindergarten work. A study of this sort gives us a better understanding of 
kindergarten, its aims and its great values. 

In March, two more delegates were sent from the club to the Massachusetts State 
Kindergarten Association Convention. These delegates, as well as the two who 
went in October, brought back much helpful information to us. 

We plan to send a delegate to the Association for Childhood Education which is 
to be held in Swampscott, Massachusetts, in 1935. This association meets annually

but it is not often as near home as the one to be held in 1935. We hope to be able 
to take advantage of the opportunity. To raise money to pay our delegates' expenses 
and to contribute our bit to the expenses of the convention itself we planned a bridge 
and whist party. 

As a way of completing a successful year's program we held our annual banquet 
in May. 

We hope that another year will see the kindergarten firmly established as a val- 
uable institution in the majority of the towns and cities of the country.

Glee Club commenced its year's activities soon after the opening of School in 
September by conducting try-outs to fill those vacancies caused by graduation. 
Twenty-one new members were admitted. 

A chapel program furnished the first appearance of the club, followed soon after 
by the concert program at Plymouth County Teachers' Convention. As usual, 
Glee Club helped lead the singing of carols at the Christmas dinner, and in respect 
to a late memory dear to all of us, sang carols around the lighted Christmas tree 
near Boyden Hall, after the Old English Revel. 

Soon we were in the midst of rehearsing for the spring concert. Enriched by 
the distinguished playing of Boston Symphony artists, the program proved inspira- 
tional as well as pleasurable. With talk of graduation came active preparation for 
music at Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises. 

With the coming of June, we are regretful for the loss of our graduating mem- 
bers, and hopeful for another successful singing year.

The choir is one of the integral parts of the extra-curricular activities of the col- 
lege. The entire student body is represented, since any commuter or dormitory 
girl may try out for membership, whether or not she belongs to Glee Club. This 
group proves a worthwhile organization by sharing its talents with the student 
body every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, when it furnishes music for chapel.

When "Alpha" makes its second appearance, the history of the Men's Glee Club 
for the school year 1933-34 will have been concluded, the story of another attempt 
on the part of the men to accomplish something of worth. 

At the time of this writing the prospects for a creditable concert in April are 
favorable. The weekly rehearsals of the Club have been well-attended. The Male 
Quartette, composed of Gene Higgins, first tenor; Donald Welch, second tenor; 
Raymond Cook, first bass; and J. Sayward Bates, second bass; is still in great favor. 
It is quite possible that a double quartette will be formed under the guidance of 
Miss Rand. 

We most sincerely hope that the Senior members of our organization will possess 
after their graduation the memory of a splendid concert presented by the Men's 
Glee Club.

The orchestra, developing from year to year until it has become an organization 
of great service to the school, has had an interesting history. Before 1926 it consist- 
ed of whatever instruments happened to come along. The members played occas- 
ionally, but there was no definite organization and no regular rehearsals were held. 
In September, 1926, several students entered who played instruments, and much 
interest in music was shown. We may say that the present orchestra had its "re- 
vival", as Dr. Boyden liked to call it, from that date. 

At first, with only forty dollars, three instruments were rented — double bass, 
valve trombone, and clarinet. Within the next two years those three instruments 
were purchased, and a French horn and drums were received as gifts from the Alum- 
ni. In 1929, the graduating class presented the organization with a gift of one hun- 
dred dollars which was put toward the purchase of a viola. Since that time a cello, 
flute, four clarinets, a trumpet, another trombone, and a mellophone have been 

Regular concerts were held March 8, 1929, January 19, 1930, April 4, 1930, April 
1, 1932, with Walter Smith as trumpet soloist, and March 10, 1933 with George Aber- 
crombie as piano soloist. In 1931 no concert was given by the orchestra, so, with 
the money provided by the budget, the orchestra hired the Tolleson String Quartet 
to put on a program. This was held May 19, 1931, in the afternoon, that it might 
benefit the entire student body. 

This year has been especially significant in the history of the organization for, 
for the first ti me, the orchestra started work with a constitution provid i ng for defin ite 
student officers to receive points according to the ruling of the Student Co-operative 
Association. The officers — the student director, assistant student director, secre- 
tary, librarian, and assistant librarian — carried on the work under the supervision 
of Miss Rand. In former years a board of directors, a secretary, and a librarian 
were chosen to aid the conductor, but the present system of organization has proved 
to be more efficient and will doubtless be used in the future. 

The orchestra played at the inauguration of Dr. Scott, and assisted the Dramatic 
Club in November and the Men's Club in January. The concert was given March 
9, with John Percival as guest soloist. In April the organization accepted the in- 
vitation of the Bridgewater Alumni Association and played at the biennial luncheon 
in Boston.

As a result of the growing importance of instrumental work in the schools, the 
orchestra has become an important part of the teacher training. For that reason, 
even those who have had little or no experience with various musical instruments 
have been urged to become acquainted with them. At the present time students 
are practicing on two trombones, one cello, and one flute, and these students will 
be added to the regular orchestra as soon as they are ready. 

Thus the orchestra, under the able direction of Miss Rand, has attempted to 

serve the student body and to prepare teachers to carry on effectively instrumental 

work in the public schools. „ .. ,, _

With the beginning of the second decade in the history of W. A. A. a forward stride was taken 
in bringing Advisory Board closer to the members of the Association at large. A council of leaders 
representing all divisions was formed. This council meets with the Advisory Board once a month, 
the members keeping their respective classes in touch with the measures discussed and enacted 

The fall sports were well attended in spite of the fact that the number of dormitory students 
has greatly decreased, and Ruth Davis did much to liven up the lower campus with sports pro- 
grams on Saturdays. 

W. A. A. was represented at the Athletic Conference of Massachusetts Teachers Colleges, held 
at North Adams this year, by President Louise West, Audrey Tripp, and Ruth Cronin, who were 
accompanied by our faculty advisers, Miss Decker and Miss Caldwell. The topic of discussion 
this year was, "Should Low Scholarship Prevent a Girl from Participating in Athletics and Re- 
ceiving Points. " 

The Advisory Board Hike, though it took the form of an automobile ride, owing to unfavorable 
weather conditions, nevertheless served to whet never delicate appetites for the attractive supper 
around the fireplace at Parker's on November sixth. 

At our Winter meeting, Miss Elizabeth Leavens of Boston introduced to many, and recalled 
to others, the fun and value of camping. At this meeting also Louise West was chosen to represent 
W. A. A. in the contest for Queen of the Mardi Gras. Harriet Hall and her committee earned com- 
mendation for their execution of the head of Helen Wills Moody for W. A. A.'s float at the affair. 

Revision of the point system and the question of automatic membership in W. A. A. upon en- 
trance to the College occupied conspicuous places at Advisory Board meetings, and a panel dis- 
cussion of the two questions was a feature of the Spring Meeting. 

The "Dance Group", made up of girls who have attended dancing classes and participated ac- 
tively in dancing for a year, was organized this year through the influence of Esther Leppala, Act- 
ing Head of Dancing, and Esther Lindbergh, Head of the Constitution Committee, to whom Miss 
Decker lent much time and energy. The "Group" now has a separate constitution but is under 
the jurisdiction of W. A. A., its purpose being to assume responsibility for ail programs such as 
those given in chapel, at Campus Carnival, and other public performances. 

W. A. A.'s long desired cabin which would be the goal of supper hikes and camping trips seems 
to be coming a little nearer realization. There is a committee investigating suitable sites, and 
several offers of the use of land have been made. If the enthusiasm of the students is great enough 
we may expect to see the plans and work of building the cabin undertaken in the not too distant

The N. A. A. Council which is made up of officers elected by the entire N. A. A. 
body and managers of the various varsity teams, enjoys complete control over the 
business affairs of the organization. This body, through wise use of the funds, has 
covered all outfitting and operating expenses of the varsity teams, while at the same 
time adding substantially to a fund being set aside for the construction of an ath- 
letic field at B. T. C, for want of which, varsity athletics have been severely handi- 
capped. The Council and the association as a whole look forward to the time when 
such a field will be an actuality. 

I n the latter part of the Fall of 1933, N. A. A. sponsored a Boys' Sport Day on the 
lower campus. Invitations to participate were sent to many of the Junior High 
Schools in this section of the state, especially to those schools in which any of our 
students enjoyed their outside training. Many schools accepted and a large group 
of youngsters received beneficial instruction and enjoyment from the various games 

Perhaps the greatest triumph enjoyed by the N. A. A. was the huge success of 
the formal dance held on the evening of February 3 in the gymnasium. 

N. A. A. wishes to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Kelly and the council 
for their efforts to establish N. A. A. as an active worthwhile College organization.

Captain Joe Morey Manager. . . Earl Sukeforth 

With the return of three veterans, Kiernan, Olenick, and Bradbury, and our Cap- 
tain, Joe Morey, prospects for a successful season appeared bright. Contrary 
to the usual custom, Captain Joe Morey did not coach the team because of other 
duties, and the services of Joe Teeling were secured to whip the team into shape. 

We started the season off with a bang by defeating Nichols Jr. College and As- 
sumption College in two hotly contested affairs. The old saying, "A good start 
means a poor ending", proved true in this case. We lost a very close and thrilling 
game to Harvard J. V's, lost to Assumption, and another to Harvard Jayvees. In 
our biggest game of the year against our greatest rivals, we put forth every effort 
to win as we wanted to bring back the coveted Harrington trophy. It was a great 
game, but the up-staters were too powerful and we were taken into camp again. 

Although the season was not a huge success, all blame cannot be placed on the 
players. Lack of practice time allowed the varsity team is mainly responsible for 
the rather poor showing. 

Ahearne and Capt. Morey did great work at guard with Bodwell also displaying 
some real talent in this berth. Olenick, our high scoring forward, Kiernan, and 
Long did well at forward, while the veteran Bradbury turned in his usual good game 
at center.

Tennis enjoyed a banner season last year under the capable leadership of Cap- 
tain Callahan. Callahan, also playing the managerial role, arranged a large sched- 
ule including many of the best teams in the east. Home games were enjoyed in 
this sport on our own tennis courts, giving everyone a chance to see these players 
in action. 

Our team took victories from Northeastern, New Bedford Textile, Bryant & 
Stratton, and many others, displaying exceptional ability and brilliant rallying in 
taking these matches. 

Nearly all of last season's veterans will be on hand when the Spring season of 
1934 gets under way. If pre-season predictions are of any value, we predict an even 
better season this year. Mgr. Callahan has arranged another large schedule that 
is bound to tax the ability of our fellows to the utmost. The players are bubbling 
over with enthusiasm and can hardly wait for the courts to dry out enough to start 
practice. Captain Moran of this year's team promises to develop a fast traveling 

The schedule includes games with the following: 

Assumption College (two games); Moses Brown; Harvard Jr. Varsity; New York 
State Teachers College at Albany; New Bedford Textile (two games) ; Bryant & Strat- 
ton (two games); Boston College; Fitchburg Teachers; Providence College; Nichols 
Jr. College; M. I. T. Jr. Varsity; Keene Normal, Keene, N. H.; Brockton Y. M. C. A. 


Captain . . . John Nolan Manager . . . Harold Brewer 

The soccer season of 1933 was not a banner one because of the size of the schedule. 
Very few games were played, resulting in almost total lack of interest. However, 
candidates were called out at the opening of the Fall term. A small number re- 
ported and Coach Nolan developed them into a smooth working unit. 

In the first game of the season, we went down to defeat at the hands of Fitch- 
burg Teachers. The team showed lots of power and the upstaters had to battle 
every inch of the way to take the game. 

Soccer has, in the past, been one of our major sports but through inability to 
find opponents, it seems to have been relegated to a minor berth. We cannot allow 
this to happen and plans are under way for a bigger and better schedule for the 
season of 1934. Let's make it successful.

Captain Charles Ahearne Manager Frank Fanning 

The season of 1933 was a successful one as our club won fifty percent of its games. This achieve- 
ment is all the more remarkable when we consider the very short and inadequate schedule pre- 
sented for the season. Interest, therefore, was curbed considerably and undoubtedly affected 
the spirit with which the players entered into the contests. 

Our team was highly respected by all opponents because of our long list of heavy sluggers who 
became known as "Murderer's Row". These men, Capt. Charles Ahearne, Jack Glenn, Eddie 
Welch, Joe Teeling, and Joe Morey were all members of local Old Colony League teams during the 
summer season. The hitting of Peterson, Kiernan, and Bradbury gave additional punch to the 
team's offensive power. Defensively, the club was second to none in local college ranks. Lack of 
good hurlers was our greatest handicap, but Nickerson proved himself fairly capable. 

Perhaps our greatest achievement of the season was the terrific battle which we waged against 
the powerful Rhode Island State pillchasers. We were defeated by the score of 8-7, but as R. I. 
was defeated only once all season, we proved that we were to be respected by any college in the east. 
This season of 1934 is going to be a banner year as far as the pre-season outlook is concerned. 
We lost only one veteran of last year, Eddie Welch, although in losing him, we lost one of the best 
ball chasers of the district. To offset this loss, Fred Meier, of Boston College fame, is to be a candi- 
date for the catching berth. His presence will add greatly to our strength. New hurling ability, 
which was our chief handicap last year, seems to be abundant this season. New hurlers of whom 
much is expected are Whitcomb, Long, Stewart, and Westgate. There are many others who may 
develop into winning pitchers, also. 

Something never before attempted by a B. T. C. team is all arranged for this coming season. 
A week's southern trip has been secured by our live-wire manager, Frank Fanning. The trip sched- 
ule as outlined by the manager is as follows: 

April 16 — State Teachers College at Bloomsburg, Penn. 
17— Mount St. Joseph's College at Baltimore, Md. 
18 — Augusta Military at Fort Defiance, Va. 
19— State Teachers College at Shepherdstown, West Va. 
20 — Greenbrier Military at Lewisburg, West Vir. 
21 — State Teachers College at Trenton, New Jersey 
Our manager has also arranged a home schedule which will tax the power of our team, but under 
the capable leadership and coaching of Charlie Ahearne, we should emerge victorious. The home 
schedule is as follows: 

April 28 — Assumption College at Worcester 
May 5 — State Teachers College at Albany, New York 
" 12 — Harvard Jr. Varsity at Cambridge 
" 19— Fitchburg Teachers College at Fitchburg, Mass. 
" 23— Holy Cross Freshmen at Bridgewater 
" 26 — Rhode Island College of Pharmacy at Providence 
June 1 — Nichols Jr. College at Dudley, Mass. 
" 1 — Moses Brown at Providence.

1934 ALPHA 



At the opening of the current school year, eager eyes were turned towards the man who had 
been chosen as the best fitted to continue the high type of work which was interrupted by the death 
of Dr. Arthur Clarke Boyden. 

Our new president, Dr. Zenos Scott, has been with us almost a year. Our needs have become 
his needs. Quietly and thoughtfully, in many details, changes have been made which show 
Dr. Scott's interest in the health and well-being of the students. 

Each one of us feels that we are his friends. Doctor Scott's remarkable faculty for remembering 
names and faces makes the students the more aware of this friendship. 

Dr. Scott is an "all-around" man, socially, physically, and educationally. Possessing knowledge 
and experience gained only after years of study and ministering, our president makes no undue 
display of his wisdom. A student never feels inferior in his presence; yet every student holds him 
in high respect. 

He has a task of which we know he is proud. May he be granted a long and rich life so that he 
may influence the lives of countless students who will pass from these doors into a world which 
needs knowledge and understanding. 

Mildred Moren 


"These things shall be — a loftier race 

Than e'er the world hath known shall rise 

With flame of freedom in their souls, 

And light of knowledge in their eyes." — J. A. S. 

In a chapel talk one morning Dr. Scott was drawing conclusions from a few facts about educa- 
tion in the economic crisis. Gradually I became aware that as he spoke of these naturally somber 
matters they were permeated by a ray of hope, — hope inherent no doubt in the facts, yet receiving 
vitality from the speaker. A glimpse of the spirit of the college, it almost seemed: president and 
students looking at the world with the eyes of youth. It was a little vision I want to remember. 

This question of what the economic crisis is doing to education is much misunderstood. In the 
first place, many people do not realize that anything is happening at all. Some teachers probably 
think that the chief result of the depression in their field is a sometimes late and usually thin pay 
envelope. Evidently thay have not read H. G. Wells, who in predicting the future says it is "a 
race between education and catastrophe." 

Even more observing people do not know what it is that is happening, or what part they are to 
play in it. They stand around with hands in pockets, whistling to keep up courage in the dark. 
Somebody should open their eyes, for these are days of destiny and destiny is plastic. 

It is especially necessary to defend any statement opposed to the popular notion that whatever 
the depression does to education will be detrimental. Yet I here say that any such results should 
be temporary and relatively insignificant. That is not to forget that two thousand schools are 
closed without funds, that in April a million children will begin a long vacation of necessity, or 
that more than two hundred thousand teachers receive less than what would be "Blue Eagle" 
wages. It is, however, to be noticed that the schools are suffering more from their own weakfounda- 



tion than from the outside attack, and that the retrenchment policy is not generally warranted, 
but caused simply by "Big Business" interests opposed to public education. When we consider 
how the Strayer Survey in Chicago showed greater savings possible in departments where public 
service would not be crippled than were possible in the schools, or when we realize how an aroused 
public will deal with offenders against the welfare of children, we must gain hope. Let the series 
of news-spreading, issue-clarifying conferences recently held in Detroit, Hartford, Birmingham, 
and Washington be continued, let unified action result in an instructed Congress, let an obsolete 
financial system be revised, and in a few years we shall have profited by the whole experience. 

The true issues at stake strike deeper, on the other hand, than the foregoing considerations. 
The real problem is a matter of principles, and deals with the larger forces which are usually vague 
and meaningless in our thoughts. One authority in the field of education, thinking along such 
lines, remarks that a result of the depression is that teachers will better realize that their calling 
is not so much a business proposition as it is a public service; think what this new point of view on 
the part of every teacher might mean! Then there is the yet more important fact that the New 
Deal, if successful, must result in an advanced economic system where proper distribution of pro- 
ducts will be as efficient as their production itself now is, the whole situation furnishing a model 
inspiration for progress in the social studies. Again, standards of living raised to keep pace with 
the upward strides of technology should furnish a background for development of all sorts in a 
parallel enrichment of education in general. The total effect of such arguments as these may be 
expressed by saying that a more favorable environment should foster education in the era which 
will follow the present crisis, whose changes, another writer tells us, are exceeding those of the 

From the number of factors to promote education in the new era, we find one excellent example 
in the increased leisure which is upon us. Because of modern machinery with electric power to 
run it, because of the always increasing efficiency of skilled labor, because of adherence to the econ- 
omic principle that more leisure means more wants and eventually more business, because of the 
prevailing philosophy that "man cannot live by bread alone" but needs time for recreational en- 
richment, and finally because of the demand from organized industry for balanced living with 
work and play in proportion, — because of these things the hours men spend outside the shop and 
the office are bound to be more and more. 

Leisure is now, more than ever before, a name to conjure with in the field of education. Every- 
body should see at once that hours of freedom in the hands of our people not only give them new 
opportunity to learn but also present the necessity that they be well taught; yet for a deeper view 
we may go back to no less a teacher than Aristotle to be told the "end of all education is training 
for the right use of leisure." The crown of our argument, however, is the common conviction of 
our county superintendents, as shown by a recent survey, that when the average teacher simply 
realizes the new importance of "training for leisure", the teaching in our ordinary classroom will 
begin immediately to rise to meet the broader responsibility and the greater opportunity. 

Even yet we have not pointed out, however, the real spring from which education must drink 
the water of life in this crisis. No ideal environment, no matter how favorable in each of its ele- 
ments, can equal the endowment which an institution receives from the mere fact that it is need- 
ed, that there is a service which that institution alone can perform. Such is the happy state in 
which the cause of education now stands. 

The crisis is not waiting for the teacher to assume his role: whether or not he knows it, whether 
or not he wills it, the hour is drafting the real educator for the service, be he in the profession or 
outside, orthodox or not in the catalogue. Without the usual label and without its name in any 
curriculum, nevertheless, the Tennessee Valley project undertaken by the government is, for ex- 
ample, a socialized experiment in education on a scale larger than we are accustomed to conceive. 
Then while plain necessity in one quarter is thus forcing the needed service to function incognito, 
men of foresight in the established institution intended for that service are elsewhere preparing 
to meet the need squarely. So in a practical way we find Virginia bearing up under the depression 
to make fundamental improvements in school curriculum, and on the inspirational plane we see 
the National Education Association offering new goals for the schools of the country. Yet ex- 
amination of such workings of draft and enlistment and in our looking beyond them to find the 
real pregnancy of the issue in the truth that, engaged by this great new service, education will 
grow in quantity and quality. 

As for quality, just begin by thinking of the youth, coming to us from years of childhood labor 
in factories; they are disillusioned: a program for them must have meaning. So for all the other 
classes, types, and temperaments in our land: education must meet their different needs, both 
group and individual. Furthermore its objective will have to be a social order creating the great- 
est good for all. To this end our teaching will deal with familiar and significant economic and 
social issues. Itwill really attack such problems as crime, distributive economies, and international 
relations. We shall value experiment and appreciate leadership. Teacher and student will shake 
off tradition and open their eyes. The education of a youth can no longer be a business of assembl- 
ing an ambition and boosting a career; it is a service of building a character and inspiring a life. 


1934 ALPHA 

The air about us is charged with the making of these things that are to be. Students every- 
where are alert and responding; especially in college are people in earnest, preparing for the new 
day and their part in it. They read with a purpose and question with a challenge. Observing this, 
Miss Comstock of Mt. Holyoke concludes, "Sweet are the uses of an adversity to education." 

Yet the new education which we have here considered makes one vital call. Only a healthy mind 
can teach another; only a rich personality can color another; only a noble life can inspire another: 
it is men must make men. Responsibilities focus therefore upon the teachers of the new genera- 
tion, — upon the teachers whom we aspire to be. 

To believe that the larger effort of greater teachers means the salvation at once of public educa- 
tion and democratic civilization is, for us, to make a new start in preparation for the calling which 
we have chosen. A start so made, here or in any other college, must result in the strong, noble, 
consecrated teacher who belongs to the new day. Only such teachers may give a higher growth 
to the individual and a new world to society. 

A creed for us, — there it stands. With hands laid warm up on the heart of it at this our mom- 
ent of crisis, may we take oath. George Alfred Jones. 


Friendship's greatest gifts to life are understanding and encouragement. These qualities are 
manifested in true friendship by exceedingly simple means — a smile that gives cheer and hope, 
a faith that is never-ending, a word that acts as a stimulus to effort, and a heart and mind open to 
all, radiating sympathy and sincerity like the warming light of the sun. 

This type of friendship may be found in our new president, Dr. Zenos Scott, who from his first 
day with us has extended to all of his comrades in both the student and faculty groups the true 
meaning of friendship which may be stated in this crude yet meaningful verse: 

"Friendship isn't just claspin' hands 
And sayin' how-do-ya-do; 
Friendship grips a fellow's heart 
And warms him through and through." 

Gunvor Henriksen 


"TC has fostered my appreciation and gave me a better knowledge of the value 
and care of flowers." 

"TC -- a chance to really know plants, flowers and nature— meetings spent in 
acquiring useful knowledge, evenings of merry comradeship." 

"TC means much to me. Besides the contact with a congenial group the urge 
to work with green growing things is satisfied. A garden is always a fascination." 

"Garden club increases and intensifies one's love of Nature and furnishes in- 
struction and knowledge of the raising and caring for growing things." 

"The meaning of TC: — Opportunity — opportunity for growing things." 

"To me TC means the opportunity of helping to make things grow, to create 
beauty and to understand nature and its work. Through TC we have an oppor- 
tunity to express ourselves through flowers and shrubs." 





A long straight road, a task to fill; 
A smiling face, a sturdy will; 
A little of love, sweet laughter gay;— 
A looking forward day by day,— 

And that is life. 

A smile, a blush, two throbbing hearts, 
A flaming arrow that Cupid darts, 
A sweet content, no thought of fear, 
A passionate kiss, an unshed tear,— 
And that is love. 

A broken heart, a faded flower, 
That waits throughout each passing hour; 
A moaning sob, a long-drawn cry, 
A wooden cross neath a hill nearby, — 
And that is all. 

Helen Robertson 

When it's spring in Randolph town, 
The whole world seems to sing, 
For then the flowers begin to bloom 
And beauty seems to spring 
I n every cheery warbler's song, 
In thriving little garden plots, 
In children's loving wild bouquets 
Of dandelions and Susan's knots. 

And somstimes in the sparkling hours 
Of April, May, and June 
The teacher flings her windows wide 
Each singing afternoon: — 
But best of all I love the nights 
When I can lie awake and hear 
The pollywogs down by the marsh 
Croaking, "Spring -good cheer!" 

Anna E. Ginnetty 


Dancing raindrops, morning dew, 

Golden sunbeams shining thro', 

Garlands of flowers wafting perfume, 

The air is atune with the windharps of June. 

Enchanting chords sound thro' the trees, 

Of love they sing in many keys. 

Bessie Freitas 

There is little left to say 

After knowing death. 

There is so little pain to bear 

When we are deprived 

Of all that we held dearest. 

No storm, or fire, or wound 

Can pierce the dulled heart's silence 

Which once with thorns was crowned.

October yet gives us a moment to dream 
While nature's in glory arrayed 
In a colorful mantle of purple and gold 
And flowers that too soon will fade. 

On the farflung curve of sandy shore 
O'er looked by tow'ring cliffs of white 
The billows roll in with a roar, 
And seething surf enveils the bight. 

To sing a song with the last singing bird; 
To look on the last blooming rose; 
To gather the harvest that nature yields 
Before the autumn shall close. 

Such beautiful dreams cannot always endure 
Yet in spite of the tempests that hover 
There still is a moment to linger and hope 
And seize that swift fugitive lover. 

So build thee a home in a faraway land 
Where the skies are not clouded but clear 
Where dreary cold winters can never arrive 
And the warmth of the sunshine is near. 

From chalky coast the azure sea 
Spreads till it meets in deep blue sky, 
At yonder sea-girt key 
Where surging waves foam-flecked tear by. 

The sun has cleared the farthest cape 
And scattered rays of light grow bold, 
And sifting thru' the mist, escape 
To blend the blue with gleaming gold. 

Bessie Freitas 

And there through the days of the autumn 
In the nooks and the dells you can stray, 
Or lie on the feathery banks of the brook 
Where the coolest of breszes will play. 

So give me October, that languid October, 

Horizons in deep glowing red, 

When mountains and valleys are bathed in 

the glow, 
That from the vast heaven is shed. 

Helen Abbott 


Warm table lamps glow cheerfully; 

The dorms are merry through, 

And laughter floats in happy halls 

As friendships we renew. 

The freshmen have their new-found rooms 

And soon with jolly air 

They're arm in arm with thoughtful friends 

Forgetful of all care. 


A pattern fine 

Of intricate design 

Life, true, 


A distorted scrawl 

No design at all 

Life, too, 



The table lamps shine fretfully; 
The dorms are restless through, 
And sadness mingles with the joy 
For partings there are too. 
Now graduation time is here 
And now our goal appears 
And yet — we've just begun to know 
How sweet can be four years!
